, there are relatively limited operations. over a third of these strikes have killed members of the taliban. recently, a pakistan major- general acknowledged for the first time officially that the numbers of people is relatively low who are killed. just to get into that in a little bit more detail, under president obama, this seems to be a shift away from al qaeda. about 25% of the targets were al qaeda, 40% were taliban. that was under torture of the bush. under obama, just over 50% for taliban targets. the number of military leaders who have been killed has been declining overall. it has only been 2%. 49 militant leaders have been killed. this initially seem to be designed to kill military leaders. we calculated somewhere between 1300 of roughly 2300 militants have been killed. we calculate the civilian casualty rate, 33% under president bush, dropped to close to 2% under president obama. this is a controversial point. some people have criticized us for our claim or our finding case on reliable medium reported. 2% are called on known. no one is criticizing us except the defenders of the drone progr
the relationship between the taliban and al-qaeda in afghanistan and depicting the taliban as the kinder, gentler new taliban. she's covered it. she says it's not true. look at the "new york times" today. in pakistan, the taliban gunned down a 14-year-old girl, a 14-year-old girl who was a children right's activist who was an activist for women who wanted to get an education. the taliban went onto a bus near catchy, pakistan, and executed her. we know now in syria that the al-qaeda has infilt rated that opposition movement against the syrian government. so we look at syria, we look at pakistan. we look at afghanistan. we look at iraq. we look at embassy protests in yemen and tunisia and egypt which have allegedly been tied to al-qaeda. so we see a resurgence of al-qaeda, resurgence of taliban that is not consistent with the narrative we've been hearing from the administration. >> steve: the white house wants to get the heck out of afghanistan as soon as possible and if al-qaeda is regenerating, that's not helpful and lara logan from cbs, here she is spilling the beans that americans need to know.

obama, there seems to be a shift away from apartheid that towards more taliban targets. about 25% of targets were all tied up, 40% were taliban to the expense -- the number of militant leaders who have been cleared -- killed has been declining over the life of the program. 49 militant leaders have been killed in the strikes. this program was designed to has those leaders, but it' killed people who cannot be constrained to be militant leaders. 1300 to 2300 militants have been killed. lower-level combatants. we calculate the civilian casualty rate, which was 33% under bush, has dropped to two% under president obama. -- 2%. our methodology has been exactly the same. some will criticize us for our plan. -- for our claims. based on our research, only 2% of the casualties were civilians. we are finding with the exact same methodology that the civilian casualty rates was about 3% under bush. the drone attacks get lost in the comfort -- coverage. the pakistan the taliban has killed almost 30,000 people in the last several years. one of the leaders of the pakistan the taliban was killed i
